Superstar winemaker Alberto Antonini consults for wineries on four continents and makes this wine from his own Tuscan estate.
What You Need To Know
Before launching his high-flying consulting business, Alberto Antonini gained fame as head winemaker for Antinori, the vast family-run company that’s one of Italy’s most important winemaking dynasties. At Poggiotondo, Antonini’s own Chianti estate, he focuses on a handful of modernstyle Chianti wines made from grapes grown on the property, which is located in the golden, cypress-studded hills halfway between Florence and Pisa. This riserva is a step up from Poggiotondo’s basic Chianti: Antonini makes it from the best grapes of the vintage, ages it longer and boosts its fruity intensity by adding Merlot.
